According to a stunning new poll, a whopping 42 million of the 450 million adults who inhabit Latin America and the Caribbean would like to relocate to the United States.
And given that many of these 42 million adults likely have children, this means there are anywhere from 100 to 200 million people in Latin America hoping to one day resettle in the states, be it by claiming asylum or simply sneaking across the unsecured southern U.S. border.
Shocked? There’s more.
Gallup Poll: “Open Borders will potentially attract 42 million Latin Americans.” This would be a disaster for the U.S. We need the Wall now!

The recent poll by Gallup found that of the 42 million adults in Latin America who aspire to set up shop here, a remarkable five million “are planning to move in the next 12 months.”
How exactly? That’s not made clear. What’s apparent though, according to Gallup’s chairman and CEO, Jim Clifton, is that the government needs to resolve this situation now.
“Most U.S. citizens like me just want to know the plan,” he wrote in a Gallup blog post last week. “What is the 10-year plan? How many, exactly whom and what skills will they bring? What do we want? Answer these questions, and the current discussion can be resolved.”
“Keep in mind that it’s not only 330 million Americans who are wondering — so are 42 million seekers from Latin America,” he added.
Were 42 million Latin American adults (most of them presumably unskilled) and their children to immigrate to the United States — be it legally or illegally — it’d crash the social safety net.

It’s for reasons like these that the Trump administration has sought to restrict legal immigration by making it merit-based and stop illegal immigration by erecting a border wall.
Congressional Democrats, who as of January control the lower chamber of bicameral legislature, have blocked all such efforts on the basis that President Donald Trump’s desire to prioritize America’s interests (“America First“) and protect its borders is racist.
The president nevertheless continues to try and negotiate with congressional Democrats for at least a paltry $5.7 billion in funding for his proposed southern U.S. border wall, though as of Sunday zero progress had been made toward achieving this modest goal.
“I don’t think the Dems on the Border Committee are being allowed by their leaders to make a deal,” he tweeted Sunday morning. “They are offering very little money for the desperately needed Border Wall & now, out of the blue, want a cap on convicted violent felons to be held in detention!”

Meanwhile, some members of the increasingly radical Democrat Party have begun arguing that would-be migrants have the “the right of human mobility.”
“We have to have respect for children, respect for families, respect for human rights, and respect for the right of human mobility,” radical Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who’s released a plan that calls for guaranteeing everybody an income, said during a presser last week.
AOC refers to “the right of human mobility”? Since when is mobility a right? #AOCisanidiot

A poll conducted by the firm just two months ago found that a total of 158 million adults worldwide would like to migrate to the U.S. It’s unclear whether AOC believes that they too possess the “right” to come here.
What’s clear is that Clifton isn’t the only American concerned about the myriads of Latin Americans who want to and/or are planning to relocate to the U.S.
Please Mr. President…if Congress cannot come up with solution – please use National Emergency powers. Gallup says 42 million coming!
